NAC is an amino acid that acts as an antioxidant and is a precursor in the body to glutathione (GSH), a critical antioxidant. NAC is a more stable form of the amino acid cysteine (which is very unstable and oxidizes readily) because it has an acetyl group (CH3CO) attached. NAC is also more bioavailable and 6 times as cost-effective as the tripeptide glutathione. Glutathione consists of three amino acids: cysteine, glutamic acid and glycine. The body breaks this tripeptide apart before absorption, but the rate limiting (most valuable) amino acid for the purpose of making glutathione is the cysteine. Therefore, simply taking NAC makes much more sense.

I just started taking this product to boost glutathione production and lower my gamma GT count. It's only been a couple weeks, but I had my monthly labs and it's the first time my gamma GT has significantly lowered. This may not be scientific research, but it's definitely enough for me to stick with it for now! Plus I can always count on Well for the best prices and customer service!
